    5.2 gone! done in by the shuffle again as his back and across movement leads to his downfall. Chopra was done in by the lack of bounce on the delivery. He was expecting it to rise a little further than it did and when it didn't he was done in and is caught plumb in front 7/1

    58.3 disappointment for Jaffer as he looks to work it away on the leg side but is struck right in front of the middle stump and is horrified at his own shot selection as he has to measure the distance back to the pavilion 240/4

    56.6 on a good length outside the off stump. Yuvraj, visibly tired has an ugly swipe at it and gets an outside edge back to the keeper, who pouches it 235/3
